If you wish to enter Slovenia and stay here for a longer period of time than permitted on the basis of a valid passport, identity card or visa, you are required to obtain a residence permit.

At Elite we have been working with the government authorities for obtaining all types of residence permits for many years to support our clients.


As a EU/EEA/US citizen you may apply for a residence immediately after entering Slovenia or before the expiry of the authorized three-month residence period. You have to have a valid personal identity card or passport and provide proof of the purpose of your residence in Slovenia. This can be either:

–    employment or work purposes;

–    working as a self-employed person or performing services;

–    studies or other forms of education; or

–    family reunification.


The administrative unit shall issue the residence registration certificate, valid for five years or for the duration of the intended period of residence in the Republic of Slovenia.


Your first residence permit must be obtained prior to entry to Slovenia. This procedure might take a couple of months. You should apply for your residence permit at the diplomatic representation of Slovenia in the country of your origin. Here you can find the closest Embassy or Consulate of Slovenia.
